The Patriot Award is given to individuals who support citizen warriors through various measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed. The Patriot Award is part of a series of ESGR’s Employer Awards that recognize employers who support their Guard and Reserve employees. This support increases retention rates in the Armed Forces which strengthens our national security.
